I have 62,000 gallons of water in my pool. How much acid is required for that many gallons of water?


I can not answer this accurately without knowing what the current pH level is. An example would be for a 62,000-gallon pool, if the pH is 7.8 with an alkalinity level of 90, you would like the pH level to be 7.4 (ideally), so you would add approximately 88 oz., or 2.6 quarts of muriatic acid. There are many pool chemical calculators available on the internet or app stores.
